Rock Band is not the only game to get DLC, as Ubisoft is granting players the chance to rock out to and learn some more tracks through their game, Rocksmith, which purports to teach you how to actually play the six string.
The tracks, available for $2.99 a piece or 240 Microsoft SpaceBucks, span a couple of decades but are surprisingly diverse. Already downloadable, you can pick up “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, “Bodysnatchers” by Radiohead and “Tighten Up” by The Black Keys in the “Rock Hits 1” DLC pack. Not a bad selection there, and pretty awesome to see Radiohead amongst the first downloadable pack. Coming on November 15 is the “Rock Hits 1970’s” pack, featuring “Smoke On The Water” by Deep Purple, “More Than A Feeling” by Boston and the especially awesome song “Jessica” by The Allman Brothers Band.
Also available now is the “Rocksmith Timesaver” pack. This pack allows players to unlock 49 various pedals, AMPs and cabinets. The Timesaver pack is available now for $4.99 on the Playstation network or 400 Microsoft SpaceBucks on Xbox Live.
Ubisoft promises to keep up with the DLC packs. I hope they do. While I currently play the drums, if they keep releasing more quality DLC songs, then it will be hard to resist the temptation to pick up a guitar and this game. Keep a lookout for a review of Rocksmith soon on DualShockers as well!
